How to make our easy Asian-style noodle recipe

Step 1: Prep the rice noodles

Soak the noodles in cold water for 15 minutes in a large bowl. After 15 minutes is up, drain the noodles well. Cut the noodles so that they are about 6 inches in length. Note: Don’t let these noodles dry out. Make sure to drain well, but be ready to use these noodles fairly immediately.

 

Step 2: Make the stir-fry sauce

In a small bowl, mix together the stir-fry sauce. Set aside.

 

Step 3: Heat a pan and stir-fry each vegetable and eggs separately

Add a stir-fry pan on medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil. 

We are going to stir-fry each vegetable separately. Once the pan and oil are hot, add the sliced cabbage and a pinch of salt. Stir-fry for about 5 minutes. Remove the cabbage from the pan and onto a plate or in a bowl, and set aside. Next, stir-fry the carrots for about 4 minutes. Again, remove the carrots from the pan, and you can set aside the vegetables on the same plate or bowl together after they are done cooking. Next, stir-fry the jalapeno peppers for about 2 minutes, then add in the green onions and continue stir-frying for another 3 minutes. Remove the peppers and green onions and set aside with the other vegetables.

Add about a tablespoon of oil to the pan. Now, we’re going to stir-fry up the eggs. Whisk the two eggs in a small bowl. Stir-fry the eggs until scrambled and the eggs are well done. Remove from the pan and set the eggs aside on the plate/bowl with the vegetables. 

 

Step 4: Garlic, noodles, and sauce time

Add in two tablespoons of oil to the pan, and turn the heat down to low-to-medium heat. Add in the minced garlic and stir-fry for about a minute. 

Next, add in the noodles and stir-fry for about 2 minutes. Turn the heat down to low. Then add the stir-fry sauce and mix into the noodles well for another 4-5 minutes. 

 

Step 5: Mix the vegetables back in and enjoy!

Now, add the vegetables that were set aside back into the stir-fry pan with the noodles. Turn off the heat. Mix everything together really well for another 2-3 minutes. Enjoy!

We hope you enjoy our Asian-style stir-fried rice noodles recipe!

Notes

Vegan/Vegetarian: This recipe can easily be turned into a vegan or vegetarian recipe by simply substituting the fish sauce with a vegan option. Or you could also substitute the fish sauce with more soy sauce. Also, leave out the scrambled eggs if you’re needing this to be a vegan dish.

Gluten-free: If you need a gluten-free option, simply substitute the soy sauce with Tamari or another gluten-free option you prefer. The seasoning sauce we used in this recipe states that it is gluten-free on the bottle so also ensure that your seasoning sauce does say it is gluten-free. If you’re very sensitive to gluten, you may also want to ensure that the rice noodles you choose are in fact gluten-free as well.
